On the opening night of their second home-stand of the season, the NY Mets were beaten 8-2 by the Washington Nationals. The Mets first home-stand of the season was a stellar 10-0 run. Including sweeps of the Phillies, Marlins and Braves.
Jacob Degrom was on the mound vs Stephen Strasburg for the Nationals. The Mets jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in the third inning. The Nationals capitalized on a Wilmur Flores error on a tailor made double play ball with two on and no outs in the fourth. Degrom was visibly upset after being lifted in the sixth innning, he was pitching much better than his last performance against the NY Yankees where he was hit very hard and had trouble locating his pitches.
The four game series continues on Friday with the marquee piching matchup of Matt Harvey vs Max Scherzer.
